After taking a break from acting post-2016, Taylor recently made a comeback with a role in the 2022 Netflix comedy Home Team, telling People that the break “made sense” for him at that time.
“I started acting from when I was a child, and it was kind of nonstop until I was in my early to mid twenties,” he said. “I’m super thankful for what I did experience, but I did miss out on a lot of just normal-life things, like going to college. I wanted to take a step back and enjoy life and spend some time with my family and friends. And I met my [then fiancée] out of it, so it all worked out.”
Interestingly, Taylor’s resurgence coincided with a new generation of Twilight fans, thanks to the series’ arrival on Netflix.
“Before that, to be honest, it was mainly the ‘Twi-moms’ that would still stop me in the streets,” he noted. “It’s like teenagers again.”
But would he ever reprise the role of Jacob Black? As Taylor previously told E! News, he’d be down.
“He’s a good character that is easy to love,” he shared exclusively in August 2022. “So, I would never say no to that.”
